Loncheria, a new walk-up destination for casual Mexican fare, has officially opened its doors.

The new to-go destination is now serving chef Jose Meza’s tacos, tortas, and more at 3858 Oak Lawn Avenue, next door to its sibling eatery Jalisco Norte. Decidedly more casual than the sleek and chic Jalisco Norte, Loncheria will serve diners on the patio, or package dishes to go. A mural painted by Mexican street artist Spaik brings a vibrant look to the bustling shopping center, which also houses East Hampton Sandwich Company, Malibu Poke, and more eateries.

As far as the food is concerned, diners can look forward to dishes like tacos stuffed with fried lobster and a pastor-style pork torta topped with roasted pineapple. Burritos, salads, and sides will also be on offer at around $15 or less, all of which can be found on the full menu at Jalisco Norte. In addition to the dining room, a small market at Loncheria will sell jars of Jalisco Norte’s salsa, margarita glasses, and more goods used in the restaurant.

Loncheria is now open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
